Helping the churches in occupied areas

Because of the Russian armed invasion in Ukraine, our churches were forced to split up and disperse. Now, thanks to the ministers who have remained, people in the occupied territories can receive help through local churches. Few people in the occupied territories have the opportunity to provide themselves with necessities: food, water, medicine, and clothing. Not only because of the huge prices for all this, but simply because of the completely or partially damaged supply chains.

Those people from the church of Zaporizhia who decided not to leave the country and be useful in Ukraine, organized in Zakarpattia and are engaged in the transfer of humanitarian aid to the surrounded territories, contact work with foreign friends and the evacuation of people from dangerous territories to calmer regions in western Ukraine, and further to Europe. Three cars regularly evacuate people from dangerous regions to safe places. These cars then go back fully loaded with relief collected by people from foreign churches. Every day we are trying to improve the logistics of delivering humanitarian aid to regions in need.

This is a difficult time for everyone, but it is important for us to remember that every human life is valuable and everyone can be useful to the best of their ability. The situation is oppressive, and it is aggravated by separation and of families, news of the destruction of our cities and hundreds deaths of innocent people. These days, it is more important than ever to be united and strong, to support our neighbors prayerfully.
